Complaint Review: David Oliver
David Oliver Bipolar Support Team Asks bipolar sufferer or supporter to subscribe to DVD sets of support material to be paid by credit card only Stanhope, Internet
*Consumer Comment: Here's my humble opinion
A Net search for info on Bipolar Disorder can lead to a link for Bipolar Support(ers) and into David Oliver's site, where you can subscribe to a free, daily newsletter on how to support and help your bipolar family member. The newsletter deals with Oliver's daily efforts to deal with his bipolar mother and all the knowledge he has gained through intense research. He solicits dialogue from his readers and also exhorts you to try out his free DVD sets, which contain more in-depth info on bipolar disorder.
Upon inquiry, you find there is a small shipping and handling charge which can only be charged to your credit card, however, you can cancel at any time by e-mail or telephone. The DVDs start coming and the charges appear monthly on your credit card. The DVDs contain no more than the superficial "help/advice" gained from his free newsletter.
Canceling the shipments and $19.99US charges is the scam. The service cannot be canceled through any means of contact as the company never responds. The DVDs keep coming and the charges for shipping continue.
A subscriber MUST CANCEL their credit card in order to be rid of these charges.
